Week 12 - 3 months gone...

Our school took part in the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal recently, bringing Christmas boxes to less fortunate children throughout the world. Read more about this initiative here.


 Recently, our 5th and 6th class pupils got a visit from Brother Kieran McCormack who gave them a short history lesson on the life of Edmund Rice, who was born 250 years ago. He also told us about the Edmund Rice 250 Appeal which is a year-long initiative to raise awareness and funds for the vital international work of the Christian Brothers and followers of Edmund Rice today and into the future. The website can be found here. There are videos and more to read about the work of the Christian Brothers throughout the world. 

Some of the boys bought these bracelets which were made in Edmund Rice schools in Africa. The money raised will go towards the vital work of the Christian Brothers abroad.
